This Peter Eaton Elite Bb is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. The Elite is Peter Eaton's best regarded model and is based on the Boosey & Hawkes 1010, though it differs acoustically, in that it features a reverse taper in the upper joint for improved tuning, along with careful undercutting. The current professional owner bought this clarinet new from Eaton, and had it serviced recently by Joanna Estall, Peter's wife. The invoice detailing the service is included, and it has not been played since this service. The clarinet has seen very little use. The Eaton m'piece has never been used by the seller. The condition is near mint, with only slight wear to the top joint logo stamp to distinguish it from new.
This Bb, serial no. E737, has wood throughout in pristine condition. All Eaton style super-pads are as new, as are the touch and tenon corks. The Silver plate is perfect throughout. The mouthpiece is a new Eaton stamped "Elite 1.20 21V ". The Orly case is used, but again in good condition.
